Whether it is a living room or a bedroom, a beautiful room décor requires careful and fashionable combination of several elements. Besides the large furniture pieces, you need to focus even on some small items that are sure to upgrade the space of your dreams. Decorating your home must give you joy, and not trepidation. While you need not hire a home decorator, you need to understand a few essential basics of decorating that would create a pleasing room.
Matching Curtains and Rugs
One essential question most homeowners ask, “Should the curtains match the rugs?” Yes, the curtains must complement the rugs. However, you need not purchase the curtains and the rugs in the same hue for each room. Updating either or both offers the simplest and most straightforward way of updating your home’s look.
Here are a few tips on how to coordinate and match curtains and area rugs based on patterns, colors, fabric and size.
Patterns and motifs are essential elements you need to match while choosing curtains and rugs for your home. The hierarchy in this case remains the rug first, curtain next. It means that the patterns of the rug will determine the pattern of the drapes.
Here are a few tips for incorporating patterned rugs and curtains:
Both the curtains and rugs come in a variety of colors. Therefore, there are no set of rules to coordinate them. However, you can follow some guidelines that would make you feel confident in the matchmaking.
Curtains come in different types of fabrics, each with their characteristics. Cotton is a versatile material, lightweight and easy to clean. If you have cotton rug, a lightweight rug or a small weaved rug in wool, cotton drapes are the perfect combination as they accentuate the rug and create a soft and warm blend in the living space.
The quest for matchmaking between curtains and rugs can end here. You can pair these two décor items together through complementary colors, similar patterns and textures. Even you can pick the two hues in the same color family. Choosing any of them will beautify your home.
